Sterling Gibbs Is Texas Bound

Sterling Gibbs will not be enrolling at the University of Maryland this Fall. He made it official on his Twitter feed.

Gibbs is a great kid and only a crazy Terp fan would hold this decision against him. Mark Turgeon got the Point Guard he wanted on Saturday when Seth Allen committed to the Terp Class of 2012.  Sterling Gibbs found a great landing spot at the University of Texas. 

We knew there would be casualties in the wake of Gary Williams' retirement.  Gibbs was the most likely.  Let's hope it ends there.  At worst, we could afford to lose Martin Bruenig; but that is where it must stop. 

Nick Faust and Justin Anderson must remain in the Maryland family. What's more, the Terps need to seal the deal on Shaquille Cleare.  If those three events come to pass; losing Gibbs will seem minor in comparison.

Now if KSU assistant Dalonte Hill moves to College Park; the recruiting landscape could be transformed.  Maryland could go from recruiting pariah to recruiting darling in the space of season.  Hill brings home the bacon, and the Terps need a lot of bacon. 

No matter what, Faust, Anderson, and Cleare need to be part of the Terps future.  Maybe, will get answers from couple of them this week

Et Tu Nick Faust?

The off season has reached Shakespearean proportions. Too much drama and heartache.  Don't get me wrong, the Terps navigated the departure of a Legend and landed a fantastic coach whom we will all love for years to come.  But... The Terps now have no 2011 recruits signed.  Nick Faust made it official this afternoon when he joined [...] Read More »

Are Gibbs and Bruenig Gone Or Just In Limbo?

That's the million dollar question isn't it?  Everyone wants to know if yesterday's formal requests by both players to be let out of their LOIs means that they are officially out of the picture.  I'd venture to say that at this point, no one knows; not even the players themselves. The decision to stay or go will likely come down to a [...] Read More »

Hey Kevin Anderson; Your Short List Should Have Anthony Grant On It.

It appears that Kevin Anderson and staff are out of ideas after being spurned by Sean Miller. The details of the fiasco have yet to be revealed; but suffice it to say that Terps Nation feels snake bitten. Not only has our legendary coach hung it up for good; but we go from hearing the media tell us how great a job Maryland is, to hearing that none [...] Read More »

Why Maryland Is A Great Job

Lots to contemplate in the post-Gary world and we are less than 48 hours into it. It looks like we have 10 hours or so before the next significant Sean Miller to Maryland update, so I'd thought I'd start a new thread. I've been pleasantly surprised at how attractive MD is to the head coaching fraternity.  In my opinion, it's a combinatio [...] Read More »
